5 Most Expensive Jeeps: From Doomsday To The Hurricane Concept
Jeep is a brand that started in 1945 when it rolled out its first civilian vehicle. However, the first jeep was originally made in 1941 for soldiers in WWII, who firsthand saw the vehicle’s strength and off-road capabilities.
Today, Jeep is synonymous with off-road and luxury. And anything that combines power and comfort can command a big price. The following are the world’s most expensive Jeep’s:
5. 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT8, $80,000
The 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is constructed using Street and Racing Technology and features a redesigned all-wheel-drive system.
Its dominant stance on the road is facilitated by a solid front axle and a more robust rear axle with a Dana 44 differential. Its lower ride height, firmer springs, Bilstein dampers, and larger anti-roll bars contribute to the vehicle’s incredibly stable handling.
The SUV is powered by a 6.1-liter V8 engine that generates 420 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. It accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than five seconds. It is an exceptional performer on the road, and few vehicles accelerate more quickly.
4. 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, $120,000
The SRT8 line maintained its tradition of luxury and innovation through the years, and the 2012 model was another standout for Jeep:
The 2012 SRT8 retained many of the previous model’s exterior and interior aesthetic aspects while maintaining the model’s elegance. The interior has been upgraded with more technology bells and whistles, providing a more pleasant ride and more convenient features.
The 2012 SRT8 is equipped with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that produces 465 horsepower. It accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds and tops out at 155 mph. While those figures are similar to those for the 2006 model, even little adjustments can dramatically change how a car behaves while you’re behind the wheel.
Lucky owners experienced such strength, establishing this limited edition as one of the most sought-after and expensive Jeep vehicles.
3. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT (WK2), $130,000
This fourth-generation mid-size luxury crossover SUV deviates from the norm. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT was unveiled during the 2009 New York Auto Show.
Despite its exquisite exterior, the SRT has garnered 30 honors for its off-road prowess. The SRT features a sumptuous interior with real wood details, cutting-edge technologies, and leather trim.
Though it has a more modern appearance, the SRT keeps Jeep’s historic style. Highly rated and regarded as the best in class, there is a reason for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT’s high price tag.
2. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Custom 6×6, $176,000
This 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Custom 6 is a rebuilt Jeep Wrangler equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 diesel engine and an eight-speed automated transmission. Given its appearance, it’s unsurprising that this monster was dubbed “Doomsday.”
Its one-piece body, which incorporates a four-foot truck bed, features a quarter-inch steel bumper with a winch capable of supporting up to 9,500 pounds, high-performance, color-changing LED headlights, and a molded fiberglass bonnet.
The inside features hand-stitched leather seating and modern amenities like a high-end music system with Bluetooth connectivity despite the rugged exterior.
This Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Custom 6 sold for $176,000 at a Barrett-Jackson auction in 2021, making it one of the most expensive Jeeps ever.

1. Jeep Hurricane Concept, $2-Million
Today’s most powerful 4×4 system is number one, constructed of lightweight carbon fiber and powered by two 5.7-liter, eight-cylinder HEMI engines that propel it to a high speed of 250 kilometers per hour.
The automobile has two seats, no doors, and its rear wheels turn so you can 180-on-a-dime. That’s right, each axle can rotate, offering independent steering across its four wheels. It is the combination of this engineering and the lightweight carbon fiber that make this Jeep the most expensive on this list.
